QUESTION 6

For a sample of 54 discount brokers the average price of a \$5,000 trade was \$33.77.  Past surveys of this kind show a standard deviation of \$15 so we assume that is the known population standard deviation.  Construct a 90% confidence interval and enter the lower bound for the interval.  (Answer to one decimal place and do not include a \$ sign).

QUESTION 7

For a sample of 54 discount brokers the average price of a \$5,000 trade was \$33.77.  Past surveys of this kind show a standard deviation of \$15 so we assume that is the known population standard deviation.  Construct a 90% confidence interval and enter the upper bound for the interval.  Hint, your answer should be larger than the one for the previous question since they begin with the same summary data.  (Answer to one decimal place and do not include a \$ sign).

QUESTION 12

A 2009 sample of New York hotel room prices had an average of \$273.  Assume this was from a sample of 48 hotels.  Assume also that the known standard deviation for the room rates is \$72.  Construct a 99% confidence interval and report the lower bound for the interval.  (Answer to one decimal place and do not include a \$ sign).
